Romney pumped out at least 20 lies last night, masquerading them as fact. What I found interesting is the statement he made about his sons who could tell the same lies over a period of time until they were accepted as fact. This is obviously a family trait.
Here are some examples of Romney’s fabrications:
A Tax Policy Center analysis of Romney’s proposal for a 20% across-the-board tax cut in all federal income tax rates, eliminating the Alternative Minimum Tax, eliminating the estate tax and other tax reductions, would reduce federal revenue $480 billion in 2015. This amount to $5 trillion over the decade.
Mitt: “I will not under any circumstances raise taxes on middle-income families. I will lower taxes on middle-income families.”
The studies Romney cites actually further prove that Romney would, in fact, have to raise taxes on the middle class if he were to keep his promise not to lose revenue with his tax rate reduction. Combine this with his statement two weeks ago that “Middle Income” means an annual earning averaging $250,000.00 with a minimum of $200,000.00. That sure sounds like upper income to me. Us $50-60,000.00 folks will get taxed.
And what about corporations that ship jobs overseas?
If he’s such a businessman… who has actually sent companies to China… don’t you think he knows about the tax break?
I wonder ho many lies will come out of the VP debate? Ryan certainly has been spouting them since his nomination.
Frankly, I don’t believe anything the Republican candidates say. If they have learned to do a good performance of untruthful things then that is what has to be addressed. Obama better wise up to this.
